Monday

 

Good morning! Can you tell I’ve been on a major denim kick lately? I’ve always loved denim everything, and I think it’s because I was raised on the west coast. Things are just more relaxed here, so denim pieces fit with that laid back style perfectly. I’ve always love a little distressing, but if that’s not your thing, there are plenty of options out there! Here’s to Monday! I hope you all have a lovely and productive week!

Splurge

 

Cropped

 

Morning! I hope you all are having a good week! So I wanted to talk about the cropped jeans trend I’m seeing everywhere lately…it’s a great trend for spring and a fun way to show off your shoes! I decided I wanted a to try them out, but didn’t want to spend the money on a new pair, so in typical Anna fashion, I created some!

I found an old pair of flared jeans in my closet that I NEVER wear, and cut off a few inches. If you too want the look of these Madewell jeans, it’s so easy to achieve! Just don’t cut off too much or you’ll end up with full on capri’s instead of a slight crop. Less is more so you can always start small and then cut off more if needed later! I love the look of a raw edge hem (it’s just more relaxed and cool) and the more you wash them the better they’ll look! Give it a try this weekend and let me know how yours turn out!

Thanks for stopping by! Sending love and light to you all this weekend!

Something's gotta give...

 

Although I TRULY try to enjoy every season, this year, somethings gotta give. I am slowly incorporating warm weather pieces into my wardrobe because well, I just can’t take winter clothing anymore! Here are some ways that I have been mixing it up and sneaking in some of my spring/summer go to’s…

1 Try adding a skirt with your sweater or hoodie instead of jeans. You can still stay warm with that warm top layer or even add a hat! Finish off the look with ankle boots.

2 Another idea… with that same sweater or hoodie, finish it off with some slouchy jeans, a belt and your favorite 2 strap heels!

3 My final layering trick for when it’s ALMOST spring and you’re dying to mix things up…wear your favorite floral dress under that hoodie! I’m telling you, it’ll look cute! Layer jeans under it too if it’s really cold, and add finishing touches like chandelier earrings, cool sneakers, and a leather jacket! Maybe a bold lip too if you’re up for it.

Happy Wednesday, friends! Hope you all are having a great week, and thanks for stopping by HW!!!
